If you’ve been following ƒ/D for some time now, you may recall Marko’s image, Wild Coast that we featured in April. Under the Trees was made using the same custom panoramic paper negative based camera. Marko shot this at the courtyard of the Student Center in Zagreb. At the right is the French Pavillon, dating from early 60s and nowadays is mostly used for exhibitions and site-specific sound installation.
You can find more of Marko’s wonderful images from in and around his native Croatia on Flickr and his ImageKind space.
Today’s photo comes from the Isle of Silba and was made by Marko Umicevic.

This ethereal image from off the coast of Croatia was made by Marko with his custom made camera. His panoramic camera has a curved film plane which holds a 3.5″x10″ paper negative in perfect position to avoid distortions from the wide format. Marko uses graded fiber based paper, providing for superior paper negatives due to higher silver density and contrast control. A final duotone touch finishes the image nicely.
The editors at ƒ/D were taken with this image because of it’s attention to delicate detail. The photo is also an excellent example of using duotone for mood treatment.
Marko can be found at Flickr and on image kind.
